Question about Denon AVR-1513
Everything is running through the denon- Im currently getting a picture; and sound out of the TV itself. All denon speakers will work only when I go into test mode. choosing default does nothing. I also have blue ray and am wireless to receive Netflix etc. Are there settings I should be aware of that may be blocking the signal- even when dvd player is not on?

This reciever does not decode the audio through HDMI, the HDMI ports are simply a pass-through. To get audio you need to connect an optical audio cable from the PS3 to the reciever also. I figured this out after 2 hours of trying to get audio from the HDMI cable. Here is a link that shows the different audio formats supported through HDMI by the different Denon models. It looks like the AVR-788 is the lowest model that supports audio through HDMI. Hope that helps.

You can also use a digital coax cable (color orange) to go into coax 1 for DVD coax 2 for cable box. Just make sure to set the coax in input settings. The coax cables are a little cheaper than the optical cables and work just as well.

Normally the optical inputs are disabled unless specifically turned on. I dono't know your specific model. I'll research the model and update this with more specifics.

My suggestion would be to not ask this site for advise.
In my opinion, this is the worst site for actually addressing any problems involving any electronic device.
It is easier to just call Denon support and ask them how to fix the problem.
Your remote probably just needs to be reset, and they will tell you exactly how to do it.
Better still you'll actually be able to talk to a live person that is familiar with your product.
These guys that run this website are really only interested in the fact that you might click on an advertisement, that's why there is so many of them on the page.
I have never once received any advise from this site that has actually been correct.
These guys have actually made the problem worse.
I had to reset my entire Toshiba remote because of the advise I received from this site.
That meant pressing and holding each individual button on the remote for 2 secs each just to get it back to the original problem.
Never ask the so called experts on this site anything because they are self proclaimed experts and are probably not familiar with your device even though they claim to be.
This website should be shut down for misrepresentation.
It only pops up first on search engines because they pay to have it be that way.
If you absolutely cannot find the information your looking for and calling the service and support center for your device doesn't work, I suggest just returning the product to where you bought it or buying a new one before trying any advice on this website.

The best possible solution to your problem is :
Connect your blu ray player directly to the HDMI input of you Plasma and watch HD video....
and connect the 5.1/7.1 sound thru the optical or the coaxial link directly to your AVR 3805.
You will not loose anything on the Blu-Ray.
The sound is best processsed by the AVR3805, while the video, which is the real upgrade (BluRay) in terms of resolution of picture would be processed by your plasma.
Connect and Enjoy
